If you look on Newsarama, there's a new interview up about James Robinson discussing the new Earth-2

Here's the link

The interview tells A LOT about Earth-2 and mentions Wally and Donna as well.

Read up and enjoy!

here's the start of another thread about how terrible DC is for not including Wally and Donna

@danhimself: Not the intentions, I merely mentioned those two to get readers interested.

For a younger, more modern version of Jay, I really like that costume.

I love it up until the antennas and the chinguard. Not too crazy about the goggles either, I just feel those things look a bit goofy. But it's still a great look :)

"Fans of Wally West and Donna Troy should not expect to see them on Earth 2, because Robinson said he doesn't know what the plans are for those characters."

I totally agree. They kept just the right amount of his old costume.

this is what i love

"You know, people want to see Jay Garrick. They want to see Alan Scott. And you're going to see them front-and-center in this book as much as anyone else."

PEOPLE WANT TO SEE WALLY!!! This is a crap line to me. People have been complaining about the loss of Wally andclamoring for him to show up in the DCnU and the power that be refuse. I know people want see the JSA as well but i have never heard such a large amount of people asking for someones return (who didn't die, just vanished due to writers) that was so popular and the writers refuse. It's like having a fan favorite player (take Tim Tebow for example) everyone wants to see given a chance and they made enough noise until it happened.

QFT. Everyone want's to see Wally (and Donna). I see more people complain about wanting them more than wanting the JSA. I think DC is playing tricks on us. They're eventually going to have to give us those two. they almost have too.

I'm fully on board with people wanting to see Wally, but in my experience (can't emphasize enough that this is just my own experience, don't bite my head of if you disagree) people don't want to see Donna quite as badly. Wally was THE Flash for about two decades, that's an experience for modern readers and fans of the DCAU that can't be ignored, Donna Troy just doesn't nearly as much significance outside the more dedicated comic fandom, and even then I think it varies.

It's entirely possible I'm letting personal bias enter into the equation. I just don't like Donna Troy. I don't hate her, but I've never found her the least bit interesting, and from what I can tell her backstory is some kind of convoluted mess, and she keeps dying and coming back so many times that its just been easier to rely on the more relatable Cassie. I don't even know what it is that Donna's been the past few years. She wasn't Wonder Girl, she was just... Donna Troy, with her weird star pattern costume. In my opinion, pushing Donna Troy is more like what DC's been doing in pushing Barry Allen, the older version of a character that newer fans kind of don't really want to see. Thus I don't think Donna and Wally are in the same category really. Not necessarily saying they're in different leagues, but they're playing in different divisions.

Finally, changing things to be more 'modern' doesn't always work out. Superman's had some questionable attempted modernizations that went horribly wrong. But frankly, I have to say, I really like that costume if it is indeed Jay Garrick. The more I look at it, the less cheesy it looks. At first I was temporarily blinded by 'I don't like this, it's really different and smacks of trying too hard.' But if I judge it on its own, not comparing it to the old Helmet costume, its really quite nice. Change isn't always a bad thing. I mean, Static's costume before the New 52 was radically different from his old costume, but damn was it much better. His NEW new one, not so much, but that's another story.

I'm a big fan of Barry, that's no secret, mostly because he's the Flash I started out with, but I'm even kinda mad at the disappearance of Wally. As for Jay....meh. He looks fine but I miss the old uniform, also why the trend of chinstraps on the Flashes? Weird.
